Annual, end of July

Established in 2004, Viva Musica! is the biggest open air summer festival of classical and jazz music in Slovakia. Its main ambition is to bring the highest level of artistry out into the streets and thus present this style of music to the largest possible audience.

'The concept is not only about Vivaldi rockin´ the crowd. Viva Musica! is a vivacious combination of music from the concert halls and the relaxed atmosphere of the open air', says the festival’s director Matej Drlička.

The festival takes place on the Main Square and in the Courtyard of the Old Town Hall in Bratislava and comprises nine evenings filled with music performed by internationally acclaimed artists. It is also nine evenings of a relaxed atmosphere without ties and dinner jackets - no stuffy, boredom of the kind that scares many. Today, Viva Musica! is the only festival of its kind in Slovakia, presenting hundreds of international and local artists in concerts free of charge.
